May Giveaway Day











Everyone join in, this should be FUN. I missed out on the last one, don't intend to miss out on this one too. I am giving away some of my wool stash, possibly some hand dyed, possibly a little kit. Don't want anyone to be disappointed, these are a few of my hand dyed wools, I have some solids and some tweeds too, whatever I decide it will be nice I promise. This is wool out of my personal stash.
I will pick the winner by the person who has the most creative answer to "What will you do with the wool" I am Not looking for the answer "use it in an applique project"

This time around I think I will just mail with in the USA (Sorry Int'l bloogers), this is my first time, and I want to see how it goes. If it goes well, I will make sure do ship int'l next time around.

I will pick the winner on May 31st and ship my little gift by June 3rd, probably sooner.

Have FUN!!!!!!!!!! BE CREATIVE and come up with a plan.

damocamelia said...

I would use it a base for crazy embrodery... then a cushion or bag!

It looks really great!

Pam said...

I am new to working with wool. So far, I have been making felt balls. I start with raw fleece. I pick, wash/rinse and dye it. I has been interesting and fun to see the results. If this wool is feltable, I'll probably do a felting project with it. I really like the way you have dyed the wool.

I think it would be great to have a wool project bag to carry around my sock knitting in progress.

two hippos said...

I'd use it for a bag.

I'm also having a giveaway and hosting a fq swap. Come and check it out :)

I'm just starting out using wool. Right now I am working on Christmas ornaments. For some gorgeous hand dyed wool I think I would want to make a brooch with bead work on it. Either way it needs to be showcased!

Shanny said...

I've been looking for wool to make 2 different projects: a quiet activity book for my girls and also to use for making a story out of pictures (used on shirts or to hang on the wall). Mainly though, I want to make a quiet book.

Jenny said...

I'm a fairly newbie knitter but I would love to try some wool socks for the cold winter. Thanks for the nice giveaway!

I would love to use it on one of my custom dog applique pillows. It could make some interesting fur!!

I have just done a few small things with wool, but I really want to do more. I've started a wool stash & want to start dying my own so I'll have a better variety of colors. I want to make some table centerpieces and some dolls of my own design.

krousegirl said...

Oh the endless possiblities. I would say either a purse which I have been wanting to do with wool or knit something cute for my LO.

I love wool! I would probably make it into felt flowers which I use as brooches or hair clips!

silversmith said...

i've never worked with wool yet, except when knitting. i'd like to try something, especially with hand-dyed wool. i could make a wall hanging with some of it or fun ornaments for my eclectic christmas tree.

Tina said...

I love crafting with wool. I would probably felt it and use it to make these pomanders that I'm making for Christmas decorations http://blog.betzwhite.com/2008/10/pomander-tutorial.html

I love to do applique projects with wool - it's so wonderful to work with. And hand-dyed?? that's the best kind! love it!

Thanks for this great giveaway!

Julia Marie said...

How beautiful! I've been looking for some fabric to make a silk-lined clutch - how lovely!

Emily said...

Awesome giveaway! I would make a hat for my brother.

I am 8. I am learning how to sew. I have been doing some embroidery stitches. My 6 year old brother is learning some too. I hope to be on the machine before the end of summer. There are pictures of both of us sewing together and of our projects on my blog. Further down in previous posts, I also have pictures of my family, mom, dad, 15 month brother and other brother and sister. We homeschool.

I am having a giveaway as well at
www.sewingsister.blogspot.com

and so is my mom at www.sewingwithtrudy.blogspot.com

Lori Kay said...

I like to use hand-dyed wool to make faces for fabric dolls. I like the idea of making the doll whimsical - green face, purple eyes, rosy mouth...

bylulu said...

I am going to make wool soakers for over my cloth diapers, and with the extras I'm going to make juggling balls for my husband after I felt the wool.

I'll also accumulate a ton of static electricity and shock my husband, because It always happens even if its an accident!

Danielle said...

I would probably make a few pincusions. I love working with wool, hand dyes are always a bonus! Love them, thanks for the giveaway!

corvustristis said...

I'd make an octopus. Oh yes! An octopus which embroidery and beads and the like for decoration. I've got this goal to make an octopus with every crafty technique and material I can get my hands on (I call it The Octopus Project) and the color variations in your wool are perfect!

Thistle Cove Farm said...

Gosh, this is a great give-away; love that you work in wool.

Jessica Christensen said...

I would love to make hats -- a girly one with wool flowers or a beanie for my little guy.

I also like to do framed monograms -- the wool is the letter stitched on to some other fabric and then embellished with other shapes -- birds or whatever -- all put into a frame.

Super Fun Mama said...

I would do about a million things. This is my "thing" now. I'd use it to make waldorf toys. I might make a playscape, some little gnomes, a fairy. I am totally obsessed with wet felting and needle felting. I've only had raw wool without color and my dying did not turn out. I'd love to play with some color wool. Oh how I hope to win!!!

Ginny said...

Probably a bag :)

VickiT said...

Those beautiful fabrics would be great to use in some of my machine embroidery designs. I have tons of applique designs and a cute little almost 2 yr old granddaughter to sew for. Wonderful prizes. Thank you for the chance to win them.

K. Anne said...

if i get one of the girly colored pieces, i will make something special for me - a bag or a cushion. something i can have a ball with adding embroidery and beads and crochet embellishments and such.
if i get a more manly piece, i would have to make slippers for my littlest boy. probably a earflap hat to match and mitties if i can stretch out the yardage! :)
thanks,
Kim
